Carol Lim and Humberto Leon Step Down From KENZO

To go full force with Opening Ceremony.

After eight years as co-creative directors, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are parting ways with Parisian fashion house KENZO. The duo first joined KENZO in 2011 and were at the helm of modernizing the brand, with playful designs, distinguished patterns, colorful prints and streetwear silhouettes. As the first Asian-American art directors under an LVMH-owned brand, the pair meshed the KENZO name with pop culture by teaming up with artists, dancers and musicians on campaigns as well as releasing collection collaborations with H&M, Disney’s ‘The Jungle Book’ and more.

From featuring models on motorized blocks to epic dance parties, Carol and Humberto are known for their out-of-the-box, interactive fashion runways and will be showing their last KENZO collection in Paris on June 23. They will officially exit the brand on July 1 and will be focusing on Opening Ceremony, the fashion retailer they founded together in 2002.

We look forward to what is to come from the dynamic duo. For more from Carol and Humberto, check out our interview about the KENZO Tali bag launch.
